Concert Information

This exploration of love and linguistics from the BBC Singers ranges far and wide, from Sanksrit to Inuit and from Greenland to Finland. But it was in China that the poet Liu Ji imagined dragons flying above the sky, bringing thunder and rain – the inspiration for the magical choral work by Mattias Sköld that opens.

Norway’s finest choral conductor Grete Pedersen returns to conduct a Nordic programme of choral music which includes with Kim André Arnesen and Carl Unander-Shcarin’s radiant reflections on love, Carin Malmlöf-Forssling’s surging song of peaceful protest and Karin Rehnqvist’s musical harbouring of the whitened, wind-blown sounds of the earth’s far north.
